Chelsea Lipford Wolf is our born and raised home enthusiast.
She made her television debut at the age of 11 when she pushed a shopping cart through the home center in the background of a Today’s Homeowner TV shoot. Today, you’ll find her co-hosting that same TV show with her dad, Danny. Chelsea branched out in 2014 with her own original web series and blog “Checking In With Chelsea” featuring fun décor, craft and home improvement projects.
Joe Truini is our favorite “nice guy.” His diverse and lifelong career in home improvement makes him a valuable asset and contributor to Today’s Homeowner where he hosts “Simple Solutions” and to our weekly Today’s Homeowner radio show.

When he’s not behind the scenes at Today’s Homeowner, Scott enjoys hanging with his wife, Anne, and their three handsome boys.
Grace under pressure best describes our newest producer, Allison. Except, perhaps, when she’s behind the wheel. Of the production van, in particular. A self-professed terrible driver, Allison is expert at writing scripts, dressing a set, and working closely with talent and production staff to ensure a seamless process and finished product.
Amy Dodsworth is our client service superstar. She takes care of our TV and radio partners with gifted efficiency and ease – a tall order with over 400 stations!

Nathaniel Lewis is our ultimate behind-the-scenes aficionado. As our Production Assistant, Nate makes sure we always have exactly what we need, no matter the job. We count on him to man cameras, set up lighting, run audio, corral cables, drive the production van, and a million other things in between. He eats steak and rice like it’s a religion, and we’ve never seen anyone over the age of 2 who drinks whole milk as much as he does.
Brandon is our content producer at Today’s Homeowner. He’s the newest member of our crew with an award-winning background in broadcasting. His to-do list is always filled with a wide range of projects including producing the radio show and getting the latest videos published for you online.

Mike Richardson is our magic man and tech genius. As our Motion Design Editor, he can make words fly, houses spin and has all sorts of other fancy editing tricks up his sleeve. Need someone to take care of that nasty computer virus, or configure your email on your new phone? Mike’s your guy. We can all count on him to meet a deadline and make our TV show – or any other video or web project – shine. He is a kind soul and can totally be bribed with chocolate.
Brad Rodgers is the best handheld videographer in North America – and he’s ours! Since he’s worked at Today’s Homeowner for more than 18 years, Danny claims to have taught him everything he knows. Brad enjoys the finishing details on any home improvement project. He’s never met a caulk gun he didn’t love – the only thing he loves more is his sweet wife Jolyn.
While his main focus is editing video content for 3 Echoes, Joel has his hands in different areas of the production process from prep to finish. Always ready to jump in as needed, his enthusiasm for storytelling is contagious. A recent transplant from Los Angeles with his wife Tricia, Joel is thoroughly enjoying slowing down and he’s become quite excited about something the locals call “nature.”
